Karl’s Saag Pilau II for Burning Man

Wife Jan is going off to Burning Man again. Last year she broke her arm, I hope she comes back in one piece this year. As usual, I am making quick cooking camp meals for her group. While this is very similar to what I made last year—which got rave reviews—I had to tweak it just a bit.

Karl’s Saag Paneer II

Jan has a potluck today and most of the other people signed up for meat dishes. Jan thought that there should be at least one vegetarian option. I suggested saag paneer, greens with cheese.

Karl’s Kale Saag Paneer 

Most Americans know the Indian restaurant staple palak paneer, spinach with cheese. If you make the same dish and add other green vegetables to the spinach, or replace the spinach entirely, the dish becomes a saag (greens). A saag may be made from almost any green vegetable, today, I am using Lacianto kale.

Karl’s Kalmi Saag Paneer

I went to the Indian market looking for fresh methi leaves, but was told they didn’t have any because it was summer. I had picked up something called “green leaf,” which I was told was very good.  Although it looked familiar I didn’t recognize it. I am always one to try something I have not tried before.

Note: I am still not sure that this is water spinach. If anyone out there knows by what other name the Indians call “green leaf” I would appreciate knowing.
